Walk Score is now using the Yelp API

Just recently Walk Score launched a new version of their site that uses the Yelp API to display pictures, ratings and reviews. Walk Score calculates the walkability of an address by locating nearby  stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc.

I think the Walk Score team has done a great job integrating the Yelp API, it's really nice to see rating and review information when determining how walkable my neighborhood is.

If you'd like more information on the Yelp API please visit our "Yelp for Developers" site.



I believe that walk score is cool, but nowadays more and more people prefer to drive cars. Homes are often located in an area where some establishments are easier to get to by car than on foot. I've recently found a type of service on Fizber which is called Drive Score. It shows a map of what establishments are in your neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance.

My walk score is 32… I was rather upset with it. And I was surprised to know that there is another score called Drive score to evaluate my house. I found the way to calculate it online at Fizber site (http://drivescore.fizber.com/). I’ve got much better results – 74.
